I picked this up yesterday from my son's Facebook page :
Newscasts tonight leading with rising gas prices. You can bet Americans will rediscover the joys of despotism in the middle east in about 72 hours.
I tend to agree. In spite of all the rhetoric about weaning ourselves from our dependence on oil, the reality is that we are still dependent on oil and will be for some time. When push comes to shove, the decision unfortunately will be to not upset the applecart or should I say the tanker. If it was otherwise, the Marines would be on the shores of Tripoli right now. Like it or not our dependence on foreign oil will continue to dominate foreign policy. Blame it all on Henry Ford.
